    Pros

    Benefits start on day one and they are not bad, could be better compensation for wages, especially for older employees, new employees start at more in some instances. Work is typical of this industry so it's not hard and air conditioned. Some employees can even get away with doing nothing all day and still get paid, that's got to be a pro......

    Cons

    Favoritism can cost you your career here. Long mandatory work hours, if they tell ya it's once in awhile it would be a blatant lie. Then there are the times you are sent home by company and forced to use personal time.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to look into all the favoritism that goes on, favoritism leads to bad employee moral..................and you have bad moral out on these floors.
